A.C. Grayling on a ceremony to remember the early 19th century essayist and literary critic.
William Hazlitt's original tomb inscription has been recarved on Lakeland granite by Lida Kindersley, to be placed over Hazlitt's grave in St Ann's Churchyard, Soho, London. It will be unveiled at 1pm on April 10th, 2003, Hazlitt's 225th birthday. Michael Foot, A.C. Grayling and Tom Paulin will speak at the unveiling, and a dedicatory poem by Andrew Motion will be read. The restoration has been mainly paid for by donations from readers of the Guardian newspaper.
